Overview: The records broken in the 2022 World Padel Tour season!

The biggest and most international season in World Padel Tour history is in the books, and it saw plenty of records being broken.

From win records to age records to win streaks, there are more than enough remarkable statistics that have emerged over the season.

We have compiled some of the best ones below to jog your memory on what has happened in 2022!

 

Age records broken

The very first tournament of the season already saw a record being broken.

Arturo Coello became the youngest male winner and the only teenager to win an Open in WPT history at 19 years, 11 months and 19 days of age.

Later in the year, in the Challenger category, Claudia Fernandez became the youngest finalist of all time.

The teenager was just 16 years and eight months old when reaching the Torrent Challenger alongside Marta Marrero. In Open and Master category, the record remains Marta Ortega's at 17 years and eight months old.

 

New win records

Heading into 2022, Alejandra Salazar was already the most successful female player ever with 37 titles to her name.

She won her 40th tournament in Alicante, and would go on to win an eye-watering 12 titles over the season alongside Gemma Triay.

This destroyed the old women's record for titles in a season, which stood at nine courtesy of Mapi and Majo Sanchez Alayeto in 2017.

It also ties the absolute record of Fernando Belasteguin and Pablo Lima, who too won 12 titles in 2016. At an individual level, Bela won 13 tournaments in 2015 - 11 with Lima and two with Willy Lahoz - and still has the record.

 

Ari & Paula's mind-boggling season

It did not end the way it should have for Ariana Sanchez and Paula Josemaria.

They led the rankings by 1.785 points with five tournaments to go, but failed to be the number ones by the end of the season courtesy of five consecutive titles for Triay and Salazar.

However, Josemaria and Sanchez did have a record-breaking campaign of their own.

The Spaniards reached a scarcely believable 18 finals in the 2022 season, something that no male or female player has ever done before.

Sanchez and Josemaria notably went on a 20-match winning streak between July and October. Within that streak, they also won 31 consecutive sets.

This is the second-longest streak ever, and underlines how consistently great the young Spaniards were in the 2022 season.

They have also broken their own record from 2021 for most successful season without being the number one. Winning six titles in 2021 from ten finals, they won seven from 18 finals in '22.

 

Lebron and Galan's hat-trick

It was another all-conquering season for the now three-time reigning number ones Juan Lebron and Alejandro Galan.

The Spaniards won ten titles from 15 finals in the 2022 campaign, making it by far the best of their three years together.

Galan and Lebron are only the third male couple to win ten or more titles after Juan Martin Diaz and Belasteguin (ten in 2013) and Lima and Bela (11 in 2015, 12 in 2016).

Lebron personally broke a remarkable record in April. The 27-year-old won the Alicante Open, making it four years in a row with victory there. No player has ever done this before!

On the other side, Galan has overtaken Paquito Navarro to become the Spaniard with the most titles in the men's Circuit. Overall, Alejandra Salazar is number one with 49.
